    Uplifting Leaders

    Leadership is hard. If you’re in it, you know exactly what I mean. If you’re not, may the Lord illuminate your spirit with revelation. As a leader, it’s easy to get so caught up in attending to the needs of others that you forget to feed your soul and spirit. You forget to be still and take stock of how you are. You can be running on fumes and not even realize it until your body begins to fall apart on you. As a follower, it’s easy to hold a leader in such high esteem that you forget they’re human, you forget that for all they give to you, they…

    Trade I Can’t For I Will

    Dreams are a wonderful thing. Whether we acknowledge it or not, as humans we take after God in our desire to accomplish great things. Those innate desires reside in each of us as a result of the purpose God configured us for. They’re what draw us towards one direction in life and not the other. And yes, we need the supernatural help of God to accomplish that which He has called us to do. For all the incredible things we can accomplish on human effort alone, the inclusion of God in the work of our hands is what blows everything out of the water and gives it eternal relevance. We…

    The Currency Of Integrity

    What’s the value of your word? Some years back I happened to be seating in a board room where an intriguing conversation was going on. A CEO was telling us of a time when handshakes were how deals were done. Of course, the lawyers would come in afterwards and do the necessary paper work.

I couldn’t help but think then, and all the more, now, how much things have changed. Over promising and under delivering is unfortunately all too common in the business world; whether it’s from a business…

    Pause

    There’s a lot of truth and encouragement that has been shared here for the last couple of months. How have you used it? Has it changed you? Your thoughts, your emotions, your actions? Has it renewed your relationship with God in any way? Has it transformed your view of work and business? I believe that the value of knowledge and revelation lies in its use. There’s no point stacking it up like trophies on your shelf if it’s not doing any good in your life. And that requires intentional application. So today, we pause and reflect. What have you done with what you’ve gained from this blog so far? Go…

    Firm Foundation At Work

    Why are you a Christian? Why do you believe the things you do? Why do you make the choices that you do every day at work? For some of us, our faith is inherited – we were born into a family that adhered to Christianity and we followed suit never really considering any other alternative. Some of us stumbled into Christianity at some point in our lives – you found God, perhaps more it’s more apt to say He found, and you’ve journeyed together since then. And there are certainly those of us who are straddled between faith and the world in an impossible act of balance and convenience. Having…
